This July, Go Vilnius, the city’s official development agency, published Vilnius O’Clock, a magazine that tells the story of contemporary Vilnius through the eyes of its residents. It’s made up of 18 feature interviews with residents ranging from entrepreneurs and artists, to journalists and public figures, a press release from the agency states.

The idea behind the publication is that every city is best represented by the people who live there, and by sharing their stories, others can get a better idea of Vilnius as both a destination and a city to consider doing business in.

Reflecting on the initiative, Go Vilnius Director Inga Romanovskienė says, “Vilnius O’Clock represents a story where our city plays the hero. And despite the differing accounts and opinions found within the pages of the magazine, they all point to the fact that Vilnius is versatile, open and welcoming, and is a place that encourages bright ideas, collaboration and innovation. Indeed, Vilnius is as diverse as the people living in it, and everyone is invited to contribute to what makes our city one-of-a-kind.”

The Vilnius O’Clock publication is now available for download on the Go Vilnius website and has been printed for international media outlets, as well as distribution at international tradeshows and other events.
